Cam Akers (Achilles) placed on IR

Cam Akers was officially placed on IR on Wednesday.

Fantasy Impact

Akers had already been diagnosed with a torn Achilles earlier this week. The fourth-year running back will miss the rest of the season. Ty Chandler is the next man up as the No. 2 RB in Minnesota behind Alexander Mattison.

Cam Akers (Achilles) exits Sunday's game early

Cam Akers sustained an Achilles injury in Sunday's win over the Falcons and was forced to leave the game early.

Fantasy Impact

Akers rushed for 25 yards on eight carries, adding 13 yards on three receptions before what is feared to be a torn Achilles drove him out of the game Sunday. Akers battled back from a torn Achilles he suffered back in 2021 as well. His status should be updated over the next day or so, but it unfortunately does not look good for the fourth-year running back.

Cam Akers reaches end zone in Week 8 win

Cam Akers carried the ball nine times for 19 yards and one touchdown while also catching his lone target for six yards in the Vikings' 24-10 week 8 win over the Packers.

Fantasy Impact

Akers made the most of an otherwise forgettable day, reaching the end zone despite recording just 25 total offensive yards on the day. The running back will be difficult to trust operating behind No. 1 option Alexander Mattison ahead of a Week 9 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons.

Cam Akers sees 12 touches in Week 7 win

Cam Akers carried the ball 10 times for 31 yards and added two catches for 30 yards in a 22-17 win over the 49ers in Week 7.

Fantasy Impact

Akers wound up seeing two more touches than starter Alexander Mattison in the win as the Vikings leaned on him to run out the clock in the fourth quarter, giving him five carries on their final drive. His biggest play of the night was a 30-yard reception in the second quarter. Akers will continue to mix in as the RB2 in Minnesota behind Alexander Mattison. He will face the Packers in Week 8.

Cam Akers disappointing in Week 6 against Bears

Cam Akers rushed once for eight yards while also hauling in his lone target for seven yards in the Vikings 19-13 Week 6 win over the Chicago Bears.

Fantasy Impact

Akers has not offered much production out of the Minnesota backfield since being acquired from the Los Angeles Rams, failing to surpass 40 yards on the ground in any of the three games for the club. The 24-year-old is best left out of lineups, but with No. 1 running back Alexander Mattison also struggling, will be worth monitoring as the season continues, with a difficult Week 7 Monday night contest against the San Francisco 49ers up next.
